Doing great, man! what about you?
Regarding strings...Sadowsky flats have been with me for the last five years. I have a set of Sadowsky Blue nickels in the drawer and I'm sometimes tempted to give them another chance, in fact I love how they sound but the flats are just so sweet.
Now I need to find the perfect string set on my double bass...and that's way too expensive. :^(
